God is good

From a forwarded email of my classmate in high school Joanna Santos.

I knelt to pray but not for long,
I had too much to do.
I had to hurry and get to work
For bills would soon be due.
So I knelt and said a hurried prayer,
And jumped up off my knees.
My Christian duty was now done
My soul could rest at ease….
All day long I had no time
To spread a word of cheer
No time to speak of Christ to friends,
They’d laugh at me I’d fear.
No time, no time, too much to do,
That was my constant cry,
No time to give to souls in need
But at last the time, the time to die.
I went before the Lord,
I came, I stood with downcast eyes.
For in his hands God held a book;
It was the book of life.
God looked into his book and said
“Your name I cannot find.
I once was going to write it down…
But never found the time”

Words

I wake up on morning of loneliness March 17, around 5am, on my new home, a day after my mom visited me, with songs of Jason Mraz on my head and these poem just streams in my mind.so i tried to write it down. As i read up more than twice.Well it Could be dedicated to the people who are strongly together by heart though they are apart. A lone distance relationship that is kept by calls and instant messages. As a company slogan says “keeping you in touch”.

All I got is words
To tell you how much i care to you
To tell how much I love you
If I only have the time
The physicallity of the presence
I would let you feel what i say
Make real all that I tell

But all I got is words
Said but not written
Passive undocumented
You can forget it after i said
Feels good while being heard
Feels bad coz your longing

The action in the words
Like a promise made to be broken
Much exposure, much hurt
If you rely on those words
Much chances your heart be broken

But words are all I can do
To tell you whats inside of me
The reality is far away from us
I’m trying to be as expressive
As what I really feel inside
That is longing for your touch
And embrace of your arms

But all I got is words
Lacking (the physicallity) of the presence
How much love I have inside
That i try to contain in words

Do you know what you’re doing is illegal…

First of March 2006, We are at break, as i got out of the door of our office, i have seen big guys pass by my left side barging at out office door, showing some id. I stayed outside the door and tried to identify the markings of the guys that just forced our guard to open the door to let them in, It’s the NBI, they have a raid, at our office? What The Fuzz about.

Am a bit shaky, because as we know how law enforcement works here in the philippines its rubbish. the elevator doors had closed and i has been left all alone outside our office whre i have ssen some guys posted at the door as SOP of the raid.So i tried to press the elevator button to go down as immediately as possible, I tried not to panick, because it wont help. So as soon as the elevator bell rang, i imediately enter and close the elevator door, meet with my colleagues at the ground floor then got out of the building for break.

We ended up at greenwich and all that i can think is to have a quick break to get back to the office, so we got lasagna and a meal, with the thought of doing nothing against the law, we got back to the office at the usual time 7:00. we dont want to be overbreak, am afraid of memo.

As we got in front of our office, i have seen the guys still there guarding the door so we came in and identified ourselves as employee, we had been guided to where my colleagues had been rounded up, i immediately thought of my personal things, as i was about to ask. One of them lifted it up and ask who is the owner of the item,I immediately answered “its mine” and he ask me to check and make sure that nothing has been taken. While i am checking,the agent could see that i am shaky as i just immediately count the money and checked my belongings. soon after i confirmed,i looked for a chair, because i am still shaky, because what i felt was being accused or had already been judged that what i have done is wrong.

We stayed at the conference room as the raid progresses in to marking the units to be seized with a scotch tape and a pentel pen. While we were there some of our colleagues tried to entertain us with mp3 but later ending in a radio, some had tried to play bottle spinning, then the pinoy henyo a game segment of a long running noontime show, jsut to ease up the tension, while our shift supervisor tried to talk with one of the agent guarding us.

The ordeal wasn’t over until our big boss came with his lawyer as they defended that we are not doing anything wrong.We are released at around 10:30.With a relieved feeling.And a hope this misguided raid wont ever happen again. And i hope if they were to gather intelligence, try not to rely on someone where their mouths are bigger than his brain. And be intelligent on execution because the raid cost is funded by the people’s money.For you cannot call them as the Bureau of Intelligence if they dont have it.

How it could be related to the title..well that were the words uttered by their team leader translated into english as my colleagues informed me.
